    Thursday..I put 300 miles on the powerstroke hauling 5 buggies of fertilizer around for 2 farms for our pasture, alfalfa and food plots. I Disced sunflower, bean and forage sorghum plots and then sprayed herbicide on alfalfa, clover plots.

    Saturday, I sprayed herbicide on sunflower and roundup on new plots, planted sunflowers with planter after removing mouse houses from vacuum lines. By the way make sure you wear gloves when cleaning out clods between double disk openers on planters or your hands will look like swiss cheese and you bleed all over everything...dirt, blood and sweat...or is that blood,sweat and tears!!..???

    Did end up catching some bass in the afternoon and having a few cool ones!!

    Let it rain now...awfully dry!!

    Now for the Turkey with the bow next week!!! got to do it

    Ill get some pics next Monday after my early morning Turkey
    hunt (chase).
    Im going to wait until the end of May to put out my forage sorghum and RR soybeans.
    Ill put my plotsave tape around the flowers next week also, they ought to be up and prime for deer grazing..

    Clover and alafalfa should be off to a good start with the fertilizer.

    MRB, I thought it was a bunch of bull also...however it worked for me. My plot last year was about 2 acres of flowers. I took the middle half of the plot and put 1 acre of tape surrounding it. You could tell where they had eaten the leaves on the plants outside the tape and not inside.
    Im using the tape on flowers this year and I bought another acre of tape for my RR beans, I'm putting in in a few weeks.
    You do have to refresh the tape with the egg spray every 3-4 weeks, which takes no time..

    notice how the flowers were consumed on the outside of the tape

    my clover is in and all my (small) fields are limed...but my spring plots bit the dust during last summer's dry spell, so I am going to try planting this fall exclusively except for the clover plot...maintain that with mowing and spraying as needed...
